Fundamentals of Arduino

Attention all budding coders & young gamers, we've got all the tools you need to become a tech extraordinaire.

Our Fundamentals of Arduino program is the perfect way to advance your child’s future-fit STEM, coding and robotics skills in a fun and creative way, far beyond what they’re taught in school.

Arduino is one of the most popular coding programs and in this course your child will learn all the fundamentals and foundations of the platform.

Arduino is used worldwide to build and program all kinds of electronics projects, as (i) it’s user-friendly and (ii) simplifies hardware programming, enabling rapid prototyping and experimentation.

This course caters to new and returning students. Our coursework tailored to the experience level of the class. For returning students, assigned activities build on prior learnings and ensure they stretch the student's skills with more complex coding tasks.
